issues, as governor romney has. >> the president had created this false image of mitt romney in the minds of some voters that was completely knocked down in that first debate. and i think now what's becoming apparent in these debates is that the president has no plan for the next four years. he's failed to outline any sort of ideas how he'll govern the country in his words forward over the next four years. and that's why these debates have mattered more than ever. tomorrow is his last chance to tell us what he's going to do over the next four years. >> and good morning. it is monday, october 22nd. and folks here in boca have been up since 2:00 in the morning. there are 15 days to go until election day, and we're live from racks downtown eatery, where everyone is here in boca raton, florida, just miles away from lynn university where the final presidential debate will take place tonight. welcome, everyone. it's good to have you here. we have a great crowd here. >> it's unbelievable. >> can you believe this? >> great crowd in here. they're all packed out there. >> they're wide awake. >> mik
the campaign trail. he's got to go run the country. that leaves mitt romney in a kind of odd position at that point, too, because he can't look like he's just campaigning. >> schieffer: what does he do, join the national guard? ( laughter ). >> he doesn't want to look like he's faking it and getting in the president's way. you saw john mccain raise the bar for the president. saying remember john mccain suspend-- he did it a couple of times, but one for hurricane gustav, a knocked a day off the republican convention to try to create a sense of "i'm president." one of the things important about taking the president off the campaign trail in terms of this early vote question, when want president ams can to town he's fly paper and gets people there to the events. what do the campaigns do? they turn those people into solterlz who will then go knock on dispersants on that final push at the end. they also turn them into votes in some states. i was in ohio this week. they were bussing them from the event to the early polling place where the, where the romney forces were watching to see how bi
like they should. mitt romney and i are running because we believe americans are better off in a dynamic free enterprise based economy that fosters economic growth, opportunity come and upward mobility is of a government- directed stance that creates dependency. [applause] you know there's something wrong in our country when 40% of children born to parents in the lowest fifth of earners never know anything better. the question before us today demands a serious answer. how do we get the engines of opera mobility turned back on so that no one is left out of the promise of america? to answer that, we have to take a hard look at the approach the government has been taking for the last five decades and ask yourself if it's working. the approach has been to spend lots of money on anti-poverty programs. the money behind this approach is that a nation should measure compassion by the size of the government and how much it spends. the problem is, starting in the 1960's, this top-down approach created a debilitating culture of dependency wrecking communities. this was so obvious to ev

's the ugliness of this campaign. heading into the last week the romney campaign against president obama carries the scent of hell. john sununu, the top romney surrogate, barks at that lazy one in the white house who doesn't know how to be an american, who sarah palin mocks for shucking and jiving, and donald trump accuses again and again and again of being from kenya and playing monkey business with the country's economic numbers. you know, the same fellow romney says cheats on the welfare checks to feed his political base. the guy again rich calls the food stamp president. listen to sununu last night yelling at former governor bill richardson to shut up saying, general colin powell's political judgment is based on racial bias. trump offering a big bet the president won't show his student transcripts all to diminish the president's academic rise to editor of the harvard law review. yes, it's all directed at drumming up the blue collar white vote for the republican ticket and, yes, it smells. david corn is author of "the 47 percent" and roy reid is managing editor of the grio. both are msnbc pol
on the presidential cam pains. particularly in some key swing states. both vice president joe biden and mitt romney have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham, but that campus is closing for that storm. sandy's political ramifications don't stop there either. take a look at this picture that we put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers hitting the east coast. as we mentioned, campaign events across the country being delayed or cancelled already. we've told you to expect huge travel delays as well. alexandria just mentioned that. in addition to impacting millions of travelers, though, the campaigns may have to make some last-minute maneuvering themselves. and finally, a major storm hitting the most densely populated section of the country, coul
vice president joe biden and governor romney have canceled events scheduled in virginia beach. >>> we have live coverage across the east coast for you. the weather channel's julie martin is live in north carolina. nbc's al roker and the weather channel stephanie abrams are in delaware. we begin with nbc meteorologist dylan dryer. dylan, we had this new advisory released just about an hour ago. what's the news in it? >> the news is there haven't been too many changes. it is still a hurricane one category at this time. but we are just noticing the track budges ever so slightly with the newer updates. now instead of a direct hit right near atlantic city, new jersey, instead now it is down into delaware. look at the watches and warnings all across the eastern seaboard. obviously most out over the water but included in that northeastern south carolina, the east coast of north carolina, and eventually those will be extended up into virginia and new jersey as well. so winds are at 75 miles per hour, but notice the path of the storm still moving north-northeast at now 9 miles per hour. it sti
aura that they projected. mitt romney, what do you think? >> b minus. >> b minus. >> b. >> b minus, tough grade. >> tough grade. basically talking about peace all night i wondered what happened to the strength. some of the statements he said you can't kill your way out of this mess. i wondered what mitt romney was talking about from the mitt romney we used to know. >> what do you think? a b? >> a b. i thought he came across as some one you could see as president of the united states. that little litmus test he could. but he didn't come across as strong and assertive in my view. >> how did, obama do? >> i thought he was an a minus. >> a. >> a, you get -- you are a tough a? >> i have not given an a in this entire series of debates to anyone. i thought this was actually barack obama's best moment. and to me the commander-in-chief test and strong and decisive was actually the most important thing in the campaign. it's why mitt romney rose in the aftermath of the first debate. i thought the president came across that way. tll was a few instances i thought he came across a little aggress
romney just gave an economic speech in ames, iowa at a small construction business that as it turns out received nearly $2 million from obama's stimulus programs. so let's go straight to gloria borgeer who i know is watching the speech. my question number one for you is this. i didn't hear a lot new in the speech. i'm guessing you didn't hear much new in the speech either. so given that fact, isn't it a bit risky, though, to introduce new policy here with 10, 11 days to go? isn't this really about getting voters excited getting out to vote? >> it's about getting independent voters to really take a look at you as somebody who is reasonable. as you said, this is really not about new ideas. this is about a different tone, a different kind of appeal. talking about change. i mean, four years ago. remember, barack obama was the candidate of change. you can't do that when you're the incumbent but it's easy to do when you're the challenger. so you make the case for change. you admit, as mitt romney did, that barack obama was kind of dealt a bad hand, but then you say, you know what? he didn't d
romney and paul ryan suggest increase military funding by $2 trillion over the next decade. i support a strong defense. but we need to retrench rather than trying to be the policemen of the world. we have too many soldiers, too many troopers scattered around the world. our presence needs to be decreased around the world, not increased, and the united states should stop trying to be the overseer of the world. that will save us billions and billions of dollars. [applause] >> all right. governor johnson. >> we need to provide ourselves with a strong national defense. the operative word here is defense, not offense and not nation building. [applause] >> the biggest threat to our national security is the fact that we're bankrupt, that we're borrowing and printing money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar we spend. in promising to submit a balanced budget to congress in the year 2013, that would include a 43% reduction in military spending. how does that go down. a 43% reduction in military spending takes us back to 2003 spending level. it is getting ourselves out of all the militar
. in preparation for the frankenstorm romney camp cancelled a weekend rally in virginia. he's back in ohio after pushing his economic plan earlier today in iowa. >> this is an election of consequence. our campaign is about big things because we happen to believe that america faces big challenges. and together we can bring that kind of change, real change to our country. >> speak being of change, president obama is taking a breather after clocking more than 6,000 miles in 37 hours. that's a road trip four. with 11 days to go the president continues to campaign with a round of radio interviews. >> after the election and i believe i'll win to bring the republicans together with my administration and democrats and say to them the election is over, we still have some big problems to solve, and the goal of making me a one term president is behind us. >> let's bring in "times" deputy washington bureau chief michael crowley. how are you? we just saw the president talking to michael smirkonish, he was on "rock center," the "tonight show" and "morning joe." he's doing a lot of interviews. meanwhile romney

numbers just coming in right now. an awkward campaign moment for mitt romney slamming the stimulus inside a business that benefitted from it. and dire new warnings of a monster storm -- monster storm, they say potentially devastating the northeast united states. how bad will it actually be? we have the latest forecast. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're now only eleven days -- we're now only eleven days from the president election, and nowhere is the campaign battle being waged more fiercely than in the battleground state of ohio. 18 electoral votes are at stake there. president obama took them in 2008. our brand new cnn/orc poll is just coming in and it shows president obama leading in ohio right now 50% to mitt romney's 46%. but that's within the sampling error. it's a statistical tie in other words. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us. john, break down the numbers for us. no state right now is more important than ohio. >> you can make that case. no state is more important than ohio. you mention it's within the mar
.m. tonight. there's also news this morning on the campaign front. mitt romney has won the endorsement of the "des moines register" in battleground state iowa. this has not gone to a republican presidential candidate since richard nixon. so to get some reaction to that, and other things, we go to our go-to guy in arizona for news, weather, and sports, john mccain. how's the weather out there, senator? and good morning to you. >> it's very nice and balmy. i think the storm may not reach arizona. but, obviously, the disruption of the airline-- the whole nation, obviously, and our prayers and thoughts are with those who line the path of the storm, and we'll keep praying. >> schieffer: all right. i want to ask you about that endorsement by the "des moines register." i mean, sometimes endorsements matter. sometimes they don't. it what about this one? >> i think in ray close race, the "register" is very well regarded, and of course it's almost a man bites doggistic because the "register" has not endorsed a republican since, i guess, calvin coolidge. i don't know. i think that aspect of it is
's economy growing at 4 percent a year more than double this year's rate. >>neil: governor romney is calling for bold changes in a major speech in iowa. why iowa? well, because it is one of four crucial states that could decide this entire election. david, break it down. >>reporter: well, in recent days, what have seen that incoming in looks like it is going to governor romney. florida is lean nothing that direction. virginia, despite some of the polls, looking better for obama, the obama campaign sort of had officials telling the national journal that is look like a romney state. where does it get fought out? in ohio. in new hampshire. in iowa. in wisconsin. if romney can hold on to the other states and get ohio, he wins. if he cannot get ohio he could still win by getting wisconsin and either of the other two, new hampshire or iowa. but that is less likely path. nevada, which was on the map, seems to is gone for obama, the romney campaign is pessimistic about it according to the latest reports. right now the president leads and it is tight, in all four of these states, then what? >> well,
you have to do it it. this is what romney's devils in it the details. >> stephanie: yeah. well listen, here are some context for y'all it is important. we were just talking to kal penn on the pam caneon campaign trail. they lost the ballot box of course the republicans in many of these states. >> they are not can quitters, it's not going to stop them. >> stephanie: kind of sore losers, voters in critical swing states are being inundated with messages meant to discourage them from voting we have had listeners call. pay attention residence in florida, virginia are receiving mysterious calls telling them to vote by phone instead of going to the polls. that would be incorrect. florida mass mailing of fake letters questioning their citizenship s letter written on fake letterhead. telling recipients to fill out voter eligibility form with their social security information, florida driver's license and addresses. the letters claim the recipient must send the form to the supervisor of election within 15 days or be purged.
